Watch El-P audition cats for Meow the Jewels album

Rap heavyweights El-P and Killer Mike’s Run The Jewels project recently listed a hilarious selection of bonus and deluxe packages on their online store

The list included the ‘Meow The Jewels Album Package’, where they promised to re-record their forthcoming album RTJ2 “using nothing but cat sounds for music.” Last week a successful Kickstarter reached well over its $45,100 goal, and El-P has pledged that the album is actually happening.

Now Mass Appeal have shared a video of El-P auditioning cats in an animal shelter for Meow The Jewels. “This is going to be tough,” El-P remarks, responding to their failure to impress. “They keep showing me their assholes.”
